An academic discourse taking place at C05 during the second morning session with ISDEV Director, Prof Syukri.
On Thursday, 23 June 2016, four lecturers from Kolej Universiti Islam Selangor (KUIS) came to the Centre for Islamic Development Management Studies (ISDEV), Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM) for a one day working visit. They were Puan Noor Idayu Abd Wahid, Puan Rahmatunnisah Sailin, Puan Siti Noor Ahmad and Puan Aemy Elyani Mat Zain. They were there with a common intention to seek ISDEV expertise and views for the publication of a textbook that they could use in the elective course offered by KUIS - Development of Human Potential (Pembangunan Potensi Insan). 
All in a day's work - Dr Fadzila Azni (centre) listening to the idea thrown out by one of the lecturers from KUIS.
Their one-day visit was divided into three sessions. During the morning sessions, in the first session, they took the opportunity to solicit the views and points from ISDEV Deputy Director, Dr Fadzila Azni, who is directly involved in this project. She has the expertise and is the current resource person for the cohort on Management of Islamic Development Institutions in ISDEV.

It was followed by the second morning session. In this session ISDEV Director, Professor Dr Muhammad Syukri Salleh, had an academic discourse with the lecturers from KUIS. In the discourse Prof Syukri shared on a range of topics from objectives of teaching and learning to heart to heart methods of writing. 
Other ISDEV lecturers came in later in the afternoon to help in any way they can on the intended textbook.
In the afternoon session, in line with ISDEV work ethos to work in a jema'ah, other ISDEV lecturers were roped-in during the second session to get their opinions and feedback. At the same time the four lecturers from KUIS get the chance to be better acquainted with ISDEV lecturers.
A token of gratitude from KUIS to ISDEV.
The intended textbook is actually a collaboration between KUIS and the International Institute of Islamic Thought (IIIT). The textbook is intended to become a module for the elective course in KUIS specifically with the hopes that it could also be used and referred to by other Institutes of Higher Education.
